Is it possible to configure access to a SAP transaction based on the time of day?  We have some processing that occurs every night from 1:15 a.m to 2:00 a.m. that becomes corrupted when any individual performs a confirmation (co11n) during that 45 minutes period.  Is there a way to disable the transaction co11n during this 45 minute window?

Thanks

What would happen if someone had the transaction open when it went from the unlocked to the locked state?  If they already had it open would they still be able to run the transaction?

One last question if I could.  I'm a non-technical user (business side).  What's the best way for me to explain to one of our analysts the method you have suggested (using a batch program to lock/unlock the transaction)?
